Mythology Short Answers
How is the word myth used popularly? For example, what does the statement, “It’s a myth” mean? In contrast, how is the word myth used in the academic context? After considering the definition in your textbooks and course materials, write a definition in your own words.

Myth is story or a legend to explain past times in a cultures history. When others tell a myth they are telling a false sense of truth to the type of story, which may have happen with some unexplained events to help teach a moral or lesson. However academically myth is used to address what is real or a false sense of truth in the context of the myth itself. A definition of the word myth does vary from person to person; a myth in this narrator’s sense is a story that cannot be proven to be true or false. For instance some Greeks had sighting of the Greek Gods themselves but cannot be denied or proven because there is no hard evidence. Myths leave the human mind open to explore different possibilities, because nothing is impossible in this world. There are however myths that are created to help children understand changes as Santa Clause or the tooth fairy, these myths were created to give children hope. Why do myths from different cultures around the world address such similar or universal themes? Think about how myths explain the unknown and the tribulations of mankind.

As in every culture there are similarities, similar beliefs, foods, clothes and legends. All the different cultures may have similar myths to provide young children with a moral or a lesson. Every culture or society has lessons and morals that they teach the younger generation to help them grow, myths provide the younger generation with a sense of understating or longing to be like those in the myths or not do what those in the myths do.

...Masterand: Tatiana Luca Capitolul I PREZENTAREA FIRMEI I.1. Scurt istoric : Saga Coca-Cola Coca-Cola este băutura răcoritoare care este savurată de sute de milioane de ori pe zi de oameni de pe tot globul. Forma familiară a sticlei de Coca-Cola şi sigla, care sunt mărci înregistrate, sunt cele mai recunoscute simboluri comerciale din lume. Istoria Coca-Cola este povestea produsului care are cel mai mare succes din toată istoria comerţului şi a oamenilor cărora li se datorează atracţia sa unică. Succesul acestei organizaţii se datorează atât calităţii produselor sale, cât şi eficienţei managementului financiar şi capacităţii cu totul ieşite din comun în desfacerea produsului la scară planetară ( Miu, 1999, p. 29). După un deput mai mult decât modest, Coca-Cola se dezvoltă în mod constant, depăşind centenarul, statut de care se bucură puţine firme din Statele Unite sau din orice ţară a lumii, pe fondul calităţii produselor. Apreciata şi căutata băutură Coca-Cola a fost creată de John Styth Pemberton, de formaţiae farmacist, care se stabileşte după războiul civil din Atlanta unde înregistrează patente de medicamente. În anul 1885, depune patentul de marcă de comerţ pentru un produs, un fel de sirop denumit French Wine Cocoa, pe care îl prezintă ca tonic stimulent, ideal pentru nervi, iar un an mai târziu 8 mai, 1886 ,modifică denumirea produsului în Coca-Cola.

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The research study was conducted to learn the localization strategy of the global beverage company Coca-Cola in terms of two of its marketing mix variables, namely, the product line and the distribution process. In the process detailed information was collected on products launched, sales and distribution practices followed by the company, the working style of the retail outlets that stocked and retailed Coca-Cola products, and to a limited extent the psyche of the consumers. In addition the study also uncovered initiatives taken up by the top level management and the strategies they laid out to enhance the company’s market share and sales turnover. INTRODUCTION Definition of product line: A product line is a group of products that are closely related because they function in a similar manner, are sold to the same customer groups, are marketed through the same type of outlets, or fall within given price ranges. The major product line decision involves product line length- the number of items in the product line. Product line length is influenced by company objectives and resources.

Coke is dominant company of the soft drink industry and boasts a global market share of around 44%, followed by PepsiCo at about 31%, and Cadbury Schweppes at 14.7%. Separately from smaller companies such as Cott Corporation and Royal Crown. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are the biggest pieces of this market. Both struggled for over a century to conquer the number 1 position in the market, competing fiercely in last few years and following each one's strategic decisions to stay ahead. There are number of companies that attempt to enter soft drinks market on frequent basis, any company that can’t maintain comparative advantage over other companies usually falls back and does not survive in this industry. Potential to sell “Fruit Drinks, Water and Energy Drinks” is showing significant growth due to popularity as well as demand for beverages that is consistently getting larger. There are also number of segments that are now consistently being reached that couldn’t have been reached earlier, traditional distribution channels that were put in place decades ago couldn’t reach certain segments due to high poverty level in certain areas as well as low progress of technological improvement in many communities.

...duty is to mix Coca-Cola’s syrup (or concentrates) with carbonated water and sugar before selling it in glass or tin containers. These bottlers can be categorized in three groups taking into account their dependence from The Coca-Cola Company (hereafter simply referred as Coca-Cola). First, there are the independently owned bottlers, which accounted for 34% of Coca-Cola’s production in 1998. Second, 11% of Coca-Cola’s bottlers are owned and controlled. And then, there are those in which Coca-Cola has invested but still has no control (55% in 1998). Anchor Bottlers is the name given to some of these bottlers in which Coca-Cola has minority interests. They account for the majority of Coca-Cola’s sales (43%), justifying their special importance for the company. They tend to be large, geographically disperse and financially burly. There were 10 companies under this label, by 1999. This rooting of Coca-Cola’s business operations aims to make the most of its subsidiaries, by exploiting their efficiency in producing, delivering and marketing Coca-Cola’s products. Nonetheless, the level of control and ownership is carefully studied based on these bottlers’ financial health, resources available at the time of the investment, and the need to share ownerships with other important business allies. An example of an anchor bottler is Coca Cola Enterprises (hereafter referred as Enterprises). This corporation is responsible, today, for the production and distribution of Coca-Cola’s products...

...mayo de 1886 comenzaba la historia de Coca-Cola en Atlanta. El farmacéutico John S. Pemberton quería crear un jarabe contra los problemas de digestión que además aportase energía, y acabó dando con la fórmula secreta más famosa del mundo. La farmacia Jacobs fue la primera en comercializar la bebida a un precio de 5 céntimos el vaso, vendiendo unos nueve cada día. Era solo el inicio de una historia de más de 120 años. Pemberton no tardó en darse cuenta de que la bebida que había creado podía ser un éxito. Su contable, Frank Robinson, fue quien ideó la marca y diseña el logotipo: había nacido Coca-Cola. En 1891 se fundó The Coca-Cola Company, formada por el también farmacéutico Asa G. Candler, su hermano John S. Candler y Frank Robinson. Dos años después registraron la marca en la Oficina de Registro de la Propiedad Industrial de los EEUU. Robert Woodruff, hijo de Hernest, es el más gran líder de la historia de Coca-Cola; asumió la presidencia en 1923 e hizo de Coca-Cola la marca más conocida del mundo.

With more than 450 brands, the company is one of the largest beverage companies in the world keeping the language of refreshment universal across the globe.  The product comes into existence: It was1886 in New York Harbor when the construction of the Statue of Liberty was in progress, John Pemberton, a pharmacist in Atlanta, was intrigued by a fragrant caramel-coloured liquid. He carried it a few doors down to Jacobs' Pharmacy where the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customers who all agreed — that this new drink was something special. Jacobs' Pharmacy then put it on sale for five cents a glass. Later, Pemberton's bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, named the mixture Coca-Cola and wrote it out in a distinct script, the same way it is in use these days.

A continuación conoceremos situaciones que empresas grandes como Purina, Ikea y Coca Cola han enfrentado en algún momento y cómo han logrado superarlas de forma que hoy día siguen siendo exitosas. COCA COLA HISTORIA La Coca-Cola fue creada el 5 de mayo de 1886 por John Pemberton en la farmacia Jacobs de la ciudad de Atlanta, Georgia. Con una mezcla de hojas de coca y semillas de cola quiso crear un remedio, que comenzó siendo comercializado como una medicina que aliviaba el dolor de cabeza y disimulaba las náuseas; luego fue vendida en su farmacia como un remedio que calmaba la sed, a 5 centavos el vaso. Frank Robinson le puso el nombre de Coca-Cola, y con su caligrafía diseñó el logotipo actual de la marca. Al hacerse famosa la bebida en 1886 se le ofreció a su creador venderla en todo Estados Unidos. Pemberton aceptó la oferta (vendió la fórmula y su empresa en 23.300 dólares) y se abrieron varias envasadoras en Estados Unidos. Más tarde un grupo de abogados compró la empresa e hizo que Coca-Cola llegara a todo el mundo. Desde ahí la empresa se convirtió en The Coca-Cola Company. Coca-Cola fue el primer producto ampliamente accesible que era al mismo tiempo un remedio patentado y una bebida con gas. De todos modos, Coca-Cola no fue la primera bebida medicinal que se conoce. En 1876, diez años antes de su creación, un cuáquero de Philadelphia lanzó al mercado su Hires Root......
